Levi’s 501 Original-Fit Jeans
Save up to 33%: Some things just don’t go out of style, one of them being the classic American pair of jeans. Right now, Amazon is running a sale of up to 33%-off on Levi’s 501 Original-Fits in a plethora of washes and colors (everything from every conceivable shade of blue to black, white and khaki), so if you’re looking for a button-fly, straight-leg, 5-pocket jean for everyday wear, we recommend stocking up now. — Oren Hartov
Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic
Save up to $275: Hamilton’s Khaki lineup has always provided watch enthusiasts with handsome, military-inspired timepieces at reasonable prices, but now a campaign at Massdrop has two versions of the Khaki Automatic available at a big discount. Choose between the reference H70515137 ($380), which features a black dial and bracelet, or the H70595593 ($420) with a 24-hour dial display and a leather strap. Both are water-resistant to 100 meters and feature Hamilton’s H-10 movement, an automatic featuring the time and date and an impressive 80-hour power reserve. — Andrew Connor
Dyson V10 Cordless Vacuum
Save $50+Dyson’s mighty V10 cordless vacuum released just a few months ago. It’s impressive enough for the brand to shut down R&D on corded vacuums for good upon its launch. To date, it’s the most powerful cordless vacuum ever made.
These things combined make today’s discount on all three types of V10 all the more rare. The Absolute, Animal and Motorhead models are 14, 17 and 10 percent off, respectively. The only difference between each is the number of extra, task-specific vacuum heads that comes with your order (a breakdown of which heads come with which can be found here). This is the first time the entire line has been on sale. — Will Price
CamelBak Arete 18 on Sale
Save $17 Staying hydrated on a summer hike or run is imperative to your performance. And the sun can take more out of you than you think. An easy way to keep water at the ready is to wear a hydration pack. The CamelBak Arete 18 holds up to 50-ounces of gear in addition to 1.5-liters of water. An ultralight pack has a removable sternum strap so you can tackle any level of hike and feel like the bag is moving with you, not against you. It folds up to comfortably fit in a suitcase, and when you flip it inside out, it works as an insulated reservoir sleeve, so that you can use it in a larger pack as well. Pick one up today for just $48.

Now Is the Best Time to Get a Discounted Down Jacket
Save More Than 50%: The end of August is no time for speculations on the changing of the seasons. It’s easy to declare summer’s end, but given recent trends, it may not be true — chances are the warm weather will continue for another month before fall begins to show its face. Cold weather will come though, and despite reluctance to admit to that, it can’t hurt to think ahead.
That’s especially true now, given Backcountry’s current sale on insulating jackets. The outdoor retailer has been running deep discounts on all types of gear and apparel through August, but for this weekend only it’s offering an additional 20 percent off insulation in particular. Given that the down jacket — or synthetic down jacket — is the keystone of lightweight winter warmth, (and that they’re usually pretty pricey), it’s a smart time to consider the winds and flurries yet to come. The extra discount brings quality pieces like Patagonia’s Nano-Air down from $299 to $144, or Black Diamond’s First Light from $229 to $119. — Tanner Bowden
Bose QC30 Noise-Canceling Earphones
Save $50: Whether you prefer in-ear or over-ear noise-canceling headphones, Bose arguably makes the best models of both. Its QC35 IIs are the most comfortable over-ear models that I’ve ever tried. And it’s QC30s are definitely the best in-ear ANC headphones you can buy. Now, Amazon is selling both Bose headphones at $50 off. The QC35 IIs cost $299, down from their normal $349. And the QC30s cost $249, down from their normal $299.
